    I'm sure it's possible that the "monkey" thing in this instance was racist..but it didn't necessarily have to have that connotation.
    The calling him a monkey, to me, wasn't the main part of the story. He told people that Obama and his children should be assassinated.

    And that is completely indefensible, which is why I didn't really address it. It should go without saying that threats against the lives of Obama or his family are disgusting. But the "monkey" thing seemed to be a prominent point in the article, so I wanted to comment on it.

    Where did we leave off with the Tea Party is / is not racist?

    My university was in Carson, CA. 50% black. I hope this racist, teabagger, scumbag gets what's coming to him.

    I read the secret service has already paid him a visit. Lock him up in county jail overnight, he'll be the belle of the ball.
    Whatdo you mean "the belle of theball"? Are you a homo phobe? How badly do you hate gays?

    by your logic, the #ows movement are a bunch of drug infested anti-semetic rapists..... Come now, you can do better than this.
    Not to help hazlnut out, but the news has reported many times of unwanted sexual encounters and the great smell of pot, as well as many unwashed bodies...a city of tents isn't conducive to hygiene.

    I'm looking forward to this racist pig spending time in prison.

    A guy who runs for council as a libertarian allegedly threatens the president and his family, and you turn the story into a tea party slur? Backing your play by using racist teabagger scumbag.

    Seems like a major overreach to me.

    Yes...lets give him the benefit of the doubt. He will mention the assassination of the President and his "monkey" children but I'm sure he draws the line at racism and meant monkey as playful banter!
